If you've been looking for an excuse to break into your scrap pile and make some cute sewing projects, here's your chance. The strawberry base of this pincushion can be made from just about any kind of fabric and is stuffed with crushed walnut shells, and the leaves on top are made from green felt. You'll find these sewing accessories a berry rewarding way to use up some scraps.

There is something about a basket of fabric strawberry pincushions that make a sewing room so cheery. Great scrappy sewing project too. Instead of crushed walnut shells and the instructions indicate, I might use some emery or very fine spun steel wool as filling for the strawberries to keep needles and pins sharp.
